ONLINE: Join us as we explore six timeless icons of architecture from medieval days to the present. Who created them, and why? What engineering innovations shaped them and made them work? How has their impact spanned the centuries and influenced our world? Some icon creators were kings; others were captains of industry. Some were creative, and some were pragmatic. One icon was built for undying love. Another generated controversy. One was started to defend a city while its ruler joined the Third Crusade. One took just one year and 45 days to complete and has appeared in numerous films. One was compared to a bird in flight. Another, built against the wall of an abandoned quarry, descends below water. Three are UNESCO World Heritage sites visited by millions. Slides and videos will highlight Notre Dame, the Louvre, the Taj Mahal, the Empire State Building, the TWA Flight Center and The Shanghai Quarry Hotel. | Lecture + Q&A.
